Mushroom Kulambu recipe | Kongunad Kalan Kulambu with step by step photos and video recipe. simple, easy and tasty mushroom curry that is best suitable for idli and dosa.
kongunad recipes are mild in spices. made with abundant small onions, coconut and yellow shaded curries rather than brown ones. I love the typical ones and the smell is totally different from the rest of the curry types.
simple, light and onion coconut flavored curry is one of the best option for piping hot idlis. We love to soak the idlis in this kulambu and have it hot ! do try and let me know how it is. In my house, its always a rule to prepare kulambu for idli even though chutneys are there.
